Description: Jerry Hairston put together a monster performance Sunday in the Dodgers' 5-1 win over Houston. Hairston went 5-5 with a double and an RBI.
Insight: It was a great effort but you can never put too much stock in one game. Hairston's lack of power (just 1 HR in 63 at bats) and lack of regular playing time make him a shaky fantasy option at best.
